Did you know?

50%: Fifty percent of students that Study Abroad go through a Non-GVSU Program.

Maintain GVSU Student Status: While participating in a Non-GVSU Program, you will maintain your GVSU student status, earn credits toward your GVSU degree and have access to your GVSU Financial Aid package.

No Double Tuition: You will not be required to pay tuition to GVSU for the credits earned through your host university, provided your host university issues a transcript upon completion of your program. 

Credits do TransferCredits earned abroad will transfer back to GVSU as long as you've completed an OASIS Application. All non-GVSU program applicants must complete an OASIS Application through the Padnos International Center.

You don't have to navigate this process alone. Study Abroad Peer Advisers are happy to advise on Non-GVSU Programs. 


Affiliate Providers

GVSU had entered into affiliation agreements with a limited number of quality Study Abroad providers that specialize in providing students with Study Abroad experiences that feature a variety of educational opportunities as well as on site orientation and support!

The biggest upside for students is the schedule of scholarships and discounts available to them via these providers. GVSU students also benefit from our familiarity with, and confidence in these affiliate programs.

Keep in mind, you are NOT limited to affiliate program options.
